I was performing a routine restart this evening, and all went as per normal until I logged in with my password to my user account. The computer encountered a kernel panic towards the end of the decryption progress bar and insisted on restarting. So far, despite what I have tried, I have not been able to get beyond the login.
FileVault 2 was recently enabled on my computer.
I have tried the following, to no avail:
- NVRAM reset
- SMC reset
- Apple Diagnostics (returned all OK)
- Disk Utility First Aid
I am yet to try the following:
- complete wipe and reinstall
